EVAC Charlotte Personal Escape Pack

EVAC Systems

The EVAC Charlotte Personal Escape Pack was developed in cooperation with the Charlotte (NC) Fire Dept. The Charlotte Pack holds 50 ft. of Sterling FireTech2 escape rope and features a pocket and elastic specifically designed for the Sterling FCX descender and the Sterling Lightning GT hook.

The rope compartment in the pack is secured with a Velcro flap that holds and protects the rope while also allowing a Sterling FCX descender to be positioned on top of the pack.  A Velcro strap over the top secures the descender in the ready position. The entire pack is designed to be stored in your bunker pant turnout pocket for easy access and rapid deployment.
